This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 21-06-2012 09-09-2012 15 Making American Taste: Narrative Art for a New Democracy Making American Taste features fifty-five works from the New-York Historical Society's collection that cast new light on both the history of American art and the formation of American cultural ideals during a crucial period from the 1830s to the late 1860s. By integrating history, literary and religious subjects with now better-known examples of rural and domestic genre, the exhibition explores the broad range of styles and narrative themes that appealed to nineteenth-century Americans seeking cultural refinement. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=113158 New-York Historical Society true DD/MM/YYYY
